At Washington Skin Solutions, owner and aesthetic nurse Nikki Brueggemann enjoys helping Washington, MO patients look and feel more confident than ever with a complete range of skin treatments and solutions, including wrinkle relaxers. In this blog, you’ll find answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about wrinkle relaxers, including how long they last and which specific product may be right for you.
Which injectables are considered wrinkle relaxers?
The two most widely used classes of cosmetic injectables are wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers. Popular fillers include JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, while some of the most well-known injectable wrinkle relaxers are BOTOX®, Dysport®, and DAXXIFY™. At Washington Skin Solutions, we are proud to offer a full range of cosmetic injectables to help address the unique needs and goals of our patients.
What kinds of wrinkles can be smoothed out with wrinkle relaxer injections?
Injectable wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX and DAXXIFY, are specifically designed to minimize the appearance of expressive lines and wrinkles. These lines are often referred to as “dynamic” and include:
- Forehead lines
- Squinting lines
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet (wrinkles around the corners of the eyes)
- Glabellar lines (sometimes called 1, 11, or 111 lines)
- Brow lines
By contrast, injectable fillers treat static lines and wrinkles caused by volume loss and skin laxity, like the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Fillers can also help to add volume to thin or deflated facial features, like the lips.
How soon will I see results after getting BOTOX?
Following your treatment with injectable wrinkle relaxers, you will begin to notice a visible improvement in your dynamic lines and wrinkles after about 3 – 4 days, with the full results becoming apparent after about one week.
How long do wrinkle relaxers last?
While every patient’s experience is different, most men and women enjoy a smoother, more youthful look for about 3 – 4 months before lines and wrinkles begin to return.
Which kind of wrinkle relaxer should I get?
During your initial consultation for wrinkle relaxers, Nikki will listen to your concerns and goals, evaluate your areas of concern, and discuss all of your product options at length. In many cases, the choice of a particular wrinkle relaxer product is a matter of personal preference or may be based on a previous experience, but Nikki will help you to understand each product so that you can make the most appropriate decision for you.
Additionally, Nikki can discuss your options for combining injectable wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers to address both dynamic and static lines simultaneously (if desired). For many patients, this combination of injectables can help to make the most pleasing, natural-looking, and long-lasting facial enhancements.
